Immunization with a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine is a critical component of the United States’ strategy to reduce COVID-19-related illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths and to help put an end to the pandemic. The federal government has stated its goal is to have enough COVID-19 vaccine for all people who wish to be vaccinated. However, in the initial stages of the national COVID-19 Vaccination Program, there is limited supply of the vaccine.

From December 14-16, 2020, South Carolina received its first allocation of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. The state received 42,900 doses. Health care facilities received allocations directly from the federal government and have begun vaccinating their front-line medical workers in accordance with phase 1a vaccination guidance. The state is expected to receive between 200,000 to 300,000 doses by the end of the year, however, those amounts are subject to change.
